Videos: Aesthetic Expressions of Non-Human Animals
Animals made of Art
Related animal: Spider Crab

Here is a TED Talks lecture on the artwork of Theo Jansen. Using mostly piping and glass bottles he creates kinetic sculptures that resemble crabs and centipedes and he releases them onto beaches. They are able to move on their own using energy from the wind and can detect when they get too close to the ocean. His goal is to create new "species" of art animals that are able to sustain themselves on the beaches without his help. Watching his artworks move is incredible and is an amazing study of animal movements.
